I passed a kidney stone a few weeks ago. I was put on Flomax for about 2 weeks. I noticed after the stone passed, my urine was rotten smelling in the morning. I figured it was the Flomax.
But now it’s been at least 2 weeks since I’ve taken Flomax and my urine still smells in the morning. It’s strong, but not clear-the-room strong. It doesn’t smell at any other time during the day.
The CAT scan showed that I had 2 stones… a larger one in the kidney and a smaller one working it’s way down my ureter. I only passed the smaller one. I have no idea when or if I’ll ever pass the large one.
Should I be concerned? Is the smell just me dissolving the larger stone? I’ve been drinking a lot just out of fear and hoping that the stone will go away slowly on its own.
No fever. No flank pain.
I did notice one documented side effect when I took Flomax. I doubt it’s related, but might be worth mentioning. It’s kinda gross, so I’ll set it in a spoiler tag…
When I ejaculated on at least one occassion while on Flomax, the “door” that’s supposed to keep the semen out of the bladder didn’t work. I read that it would just be expelled through urination, so I didn’t worry too much about it. I think everything is flowing in the right direction again though.
